7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." learning more about the patient diagnosed with ebola in the united states. our dallas state identified the victim as thomas eric duncan. >> united airlines confirms duncan flew on two of its planes. first went from liberia to brussels. from there united to dulles airport near washington. then on to dallas. the cdc says there is zero risk of transmission on any of duncan's flights. but manuel bojorques is in dallas. where miscommunication may have put more people at risk. >> reporter: good morning. and good morning to our viewers in the west. the patient remains in serious condition here. the dallas county health officials announced the circle of people potentially exposed is now 80. but fewer than 20 of those are thought to have had direct contact with the patient. professionals on every level of the chain of command know what
7:04 am
to do to minimize this potential risk to the people of texas, of this country for that matter. >> reporter: texas governor rick perry tried to contain the sense of uncertainty in a community on edge. after a man from liberia tested positive for ebola in dallas. hospital officials admit a nurse learned the patient had recently traveled from africa during his first visit to the er last friday. but say that information was not passed along. >> as a result the full import of that information wasn't factored in to the clinical decision making. >> reporter: health officials are monitoring 12 to 18 people who may have had direct contact with people at this apartment complex where he was staying with relatives. some have been isolated at home. all are being checked daily for symptoms of ebola. that number includes five children who attend four different dallas area schools. officials say those schools will be getting some extra cleaning as a precaution. and they emphasize that children
7:05 am
have not shown any symptoms of ebola and believe the student population is safe. >> we're going to keep going. business as usual. school will be in session. >> reporter: that didn't stop some parents from picking up their kids from school early. others say they plan on keeping their kids at home. the cdc says people should not panic, but they should be mindful that the world is a global village where an outbreak overseas could find its way anywhere. >> so, this is a fact of life in the united states now. >> i think it's a fact of life anywhere in the world. >> reporter: four of the patient's close family members have now been served with legal orders requiring them to stay at home and not have visitors until at least october 19th or they could face criminal charges. officials say anyone with symptoms will be isolated immediately. >> all right, thank you. "usa today" is reporting that texas health officials are monitoring a second possible ebola patient but this morning we learned from dr. frieden, the head the cdc, that report is not
7:06 am
correct. in hawaii one patient in hospitalization. the patient may have ebola but the symptoms could reflect a number of ill hisnessnessillnesses. >> our chief medical corresponden ere. what alarms you most? and concerns you most at this moment? >> by far, what's going on in africa, because it's now -- it's out of control in africa right now. a nunmbers game. it's almost magical thinks to think there won't be other cases, not only in america but elsewhere. it's an incubation period of 2 to 21 days. somebody gets on the plane feeling perfectly fine they come here and they get sick. >> but we learned that 18 people, including five children came in contact with this man who has ebola. how concerned should we be that they may also be victims? >> well we are concerned enough to be following them closely. if anybody gets symptoms
7:07 am
there's going to be con centric circles. here's the one thing that should calm people down a lot. it's only spread through direct contact with fluids. if this were spread through the air the way flu is there would be millions of people in africa who already would be affected. >> it is also spread through sweat, right if you shake hands? >> you have to have a cut in your hand, some way for the virus to not only get into your skin, but through that into the bloodstream. in your mouth, in your nose mucus membranes. >> probably shouldn't be concerned about people on the plane being exposed to him, is that still true? >> very different from the flu. with the flu, you can spread it a day before you get symptoms. with this, you have to be symptomatic. >> is the key lesson here what do we do to make sure we inspect people coming in to make sure we know more about people coming into the country? >> it's really hard to do that. you're going to have people coming in and they may have a fever, they may not have a fever. what i'm most concerned about is
7:08 am
people feeling perfectly fine. they've gotten the virus. they're incubating it. and they come here. what's most concerning about this is the fact that protocol broke down. i mean it is not okay for the last month or two, we've gotten all sorts of communications saying, think ebola. even if somebody mild viral-type symptoms. they ask a travel history. it was asked and then somehow communication broke down. it was not okay. >> these five children go to four different schools. should parents keep their kids home? >> i think you have to follow the cdc and health officials about that advice. >> thanks, john. ahead, travel editor peter greenberg show us what airlines and airports are doing and not doing to prevent the spread of ebola. >> concerns of another virus. a 10-year-old rhode island girl died from possible complication of enterovirus d-68. that strain has infected 500 people in 42 states mostly children. doctors are now looking into potentially deadly side effects. anna warner is at childrens
7:09 am
hospital in aurora where several patients have been treated. >> most cases are mild leading to nothing more than cold-like symptoms. but doctors are looking into whether enterovirus d-68 could be linked to polio-like symptoms in some children even to death. >> there was a death of a 10-year-old child from cumberland, a tragic death. >> the fifth grader died less than 24 hours after she was rushed to the hospital for breathing problems. state health officials say she died from the staph infection but also tested positive for enterovirus d-68. >> from a infectious disease perspective perspective, a perfect storm. >> hers was the rare case. it's the numbers of cases across the country that's gotten the attention of federal health officials. >> scary. >> 9-year-old jason broadway came home from school one day last month with what seemed like a cold but his condition quickly deteriorated. >> literally two hours later he
7:10 am
had -- he couldn't breathe. >> what's that like to realize he couldn't breathe? >> it's petrifying. the scariest thing ever to see your child not be able to take a breath. >> reporter: doctors told her he had enterovirus d-68. some children who tested positive to the virus have shown polio-like symptoms including limb weakness. doctors at the children's hospital of colorado have seen ten children with those symptoms. health officials in los angeles reported a similar case wednesday. >> we don't know the answer why at this type this virus appears to be so virulent. >> doctors cannot say for sure whether this virus is linked to those polio-like symptoms seen in some infected children. this virus is spreading. the cdc does expect to see more cases confirmed nationwide as they continue to test people with respiratory illnesses. now, children with asthma are more at risk of serious illness.
7:11 am
but, again, doctors say for most people this is a mild illness with cold-like symptoms. >> anna thanks. the embattled head of the secret service is out. director julia pierce resigned wednesday after repeated calls for her to leave. the decision follows a string of embarrassing secret service failures. bill plante is at the white house where officials say no one encouraged pierson to stay. bill, good morning. >> good morning, and good morning to our viewers in the west. after that cascade of revelations, pierson's fate was sealed in meetings yesterday morning. by the time she met with her bus, homeland security secretary johnson, she didn't have to be asked to step down. she told bloomberg news she felt it was the noble thing to do. >> in a meeting earlier this afternoon, the director of -- the secretary of homeland security met with director pierson and accepted her res ignition. >> reporter: news of secret service director julia pierson's
7:12 am
departure broke as lawmakers, frustrated with her appearance before a house committee tuesday, began demanding that she step down. >> i have very low confidence in the secret service under your leadership. >> support evaporated with the revelation that agents were totally unaware that a security guard with a criminal record was allowed on an elevator with the president while carrying a gun. press secretary josh earnest said the white house had not been briefed. >> the white house first learned of that incident yesterday afternoon, shortly before it was reported. >> the first woman to head the secret service pierson took over just 18 months ago in the wake of a prostitution scandal involving agents on a presidential trip to colombia. critics in congress say more personnel changes may be necessary. >> i'm glad she's leaving. there's a culture problem at the secret service that needs to be addressed. as i told her today, i don't think that she's in a position to address it. >> reporter: joe clancy, the
7:13 am
retired head of obama's presidential detail will serve as interim director. pending the results of an independent investigation, which could possibly include recommendations on a permanent replacement from outside the agency. omar gonzalez who scaled the white house fence and bolted across the lawn into the front door appeared in court wednesday. he pled not guilty to three charges, with a maximum penalty of 16 years, and he remains in custody. >> all right, bill thank you. that new secret service interim director clancy, is 58 years old. he retired three years ago as special agent in charge of presidential protective division. he claims he joins the secret service in the 1980s. bill, good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> you've spent a lot of time with joe clancy because he was there with the president, so close to the president. do you think he'll be able to change things at the secret
7:14 am
service? >> i think he will. i think he's a strong leader. but i think the fact he's not a bureaucrat, he comes from the ranks, has held the highest level of responsibility in the service, and that is running the president's perspective detail, says a lot. i think he knows that there has to be a transparency that hasn't been there recently. but he also knows that they've got to clean up their act. >> what is it they have to change, bill? >> i think there are -- look, these men and wenlomen have to be right 100% of the time and the vast majority of the time they are. even though there's been lapses and they've been noted, thank god they've not created any situation that was a crisis for the nation. so i think there is -- i don't believe there's a culture that has to be changed. i think it just needs strong leadership which i think joe will bring. both on an interim basis. and they have to look to somebody who has been in leadership in the service.
7:15 am
it's become a very large bureaucracy with thousands and thousands of employees, so that's another problem. right now, they need stability. i think joe brings that. he has character. he's been on the street in a sense. i think he's the perfect guy for this. >> homeland security or treasury? >> i don't think it matters where it's at. it's about the day to day job that's done. every agency in homeland security would like to be out of homeland security because it's massively big and they're fighting for dollars that are shrinking. i don't think it's where it's at, i think it's what they do day after day, and i don't think there's no one better to lead that organization than clancy. an ultimatum from protesters in hong kong. the demonstrators threatened to occupy government offices unless the region's leader steps down by the end of the day. the government says that demand is, quote, impossible to meet.
7:16 am
seth doane is in hong kong where the government is washing gwarning protesters there there will be consequences for their actions. >> reporter: good morning. so far, the government in hong kong and beijing have not given any sort of indication that they will bend to protesters demands. in fact the communist party's people's daily newspaper warned of chaos on the streets of hong kong if these protests were allowed to continue. around me here these protesters are trying to show a very different side. one that's calm and orderly. protesters are policing themselves and helping each other. whether it's navigating barricades offering water, cooling mist or even a free haircut. >> free haircut. >> reporter: uniformed police are hanging back. >> so you've got cooling pads here, face masks, water and crackers, anything the protesters need. >> yes, almost everything.
7:17 am
>> reporter: he thinks beijing is unlikely to budge. but says they still have hope and discipline. >> you think a polite protest shows that hong kong should be demo cratic? >> yes, we have good manner at least in this way. >> reporter: china is watching these protests closely. earlier this week a u.s. security firm alleged on its website that the chinese government may be using spy ware to monitor protesters. you say you started using this app just yesterday. why did you download it? >> because my friend told me the protesters are sharing information over this app. >> reporter: winnie law showed us an app protesters are using. it's called fire chat. it claims to have had 100,000 downloads in 24 hours. it works using peer to peer wifi, which is helpful in con jecht
7:18 am
con jechtgested areas with protesters. >> people are asking for water and supplies? >> yes. >> reporter: we spoke with several tourists from mainland china who were visiting here today. they told us they believed this protest had the power to inspire democratic awareness in mainland, china. of course that is exactly what the chinese government does not want. interestingly, norah and charlie, those tourists were too scared to talk with us on camera. >> interesting, seth thank you so much. this morning, a long island new york high school is grieving for a football player who died following a game. tom cutinella suffered a head injury in a collision with an moment. he was rushed to a nearby hospital but died hours later. grief counselors are at the school to talk with students. the alleged head of one of mexico's most feared drug cartels is under arrest this morning. mexican special forces grabbed him yesterday in central mexico. authorities say his gang is responsible for trafficking

7:33 am
be at risk. cbs travel analyst peter greenberg has a different view. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> what do you think? >> there's not an effective screening program for this problem worldwide but there's precedent for it. years ago they had hoof and mouth disease in the unite kingdom. they had basic questions, have you been on a farm lately. and then we had sars. guess what happened? you couldn't get on or off a plane without having your temperature taken. >> that's the thing with ebola. he appeared asymptomatic. he appeared perfectly fine. he would have passed screening. >> he did pass screening. that's the thing. it's not a question of the flights from london to new york but passing the risk among passengers. 70% of the passengers are not
7:34 am
flying there they're flying through there. >> what should passengers do to protect themselves? >> basic hygiene, you know take antiseptic wipes. as dr. jon lapook, 20 to 21 days. >> united airlines is not required to tell other passengers who were on board that they were traveling with someone who had ebola. why not? >> thank the lawyers for that. it's a lita liability. i must tell you. in 2009 when we had the swine flu, the world health organization came out and basically said we don't need travel restrictions or proper
7:35 am
screening because it's not going to affect the transmission anyway. >> there are reports they appear to be reaching out to some passengers. why do they do that? >> they're still concerned about liability. the bottom line is they have to have the conversation. i can't stress it enough. >> where you've been an -- >> if you say to somebody have you been in liberia recently or sierra leone that creates another conversation. you have some airlines voting. british airways no longer flying to parts of the world. that's exactly what they're doing. >> thank you peter greenberg. there's a new perspective for the search in the missing university of virginia student. this is the first time an unmanned drone is being used. graham has been missing for almost three weeks now. as we reported a man is under arrest in connection with her kidnapping. a girl missing for more than a decade is back in her home state of texas this morning.

this morning health officials in texas are trying to track down people at risk of getting ebola. thomas eric johnson is the first person to be effected in the united states. four of his family members have been told to stay home and not visit him. the cdc is monitoring 12 to 18 people he may have come in contact with since last month. a dallas health official confirms that in turn those people were in contact with more than 80 other people. >> five kids are among those possibly exposed, putting some dallas schools on alert today. the three paramedics who took duncan to the hospital are also in isolation as a precaution. >> we are tracking the concerns of another deadly risk, enterovirus, it has spread from 12 to 24 states in three weeks. doctors are worried the virus is linked to the deaths of four patients including a 10-year-old rhode island girl. dr. holly phillips is here. dr. holly, good morning. >> good morning. >> four patients who have died have tested positive for this
8:03 am
enterovirus. is it clear though that that virus played a role in their deaths? >> no norah. it's not clear yet at all. in one of the deaths the young girl in rhode island right now her death is being attributed to a bacteria stalled staph orius which causes a very serious blood infection. it could be the enterovirus compromised her immune system that made her vulnerable to this bacteria and perhaps that's what happened to the other patients. it's not clear now exactly how the two entities are linked. >> why is it so hard to track it and to test it? >> the first reason is that enterovirus doesn't make everyone really sick. some people might have a run any nose, some people might not have any symptoms at all so they may not go to a doctor. the other thing is the test for enterovirus is not routinely carried at a doctor's office like a strep test. this is something that goes to the department of health and not
8:04 am
routinely tested for. so i think many cases can slip through the cracks. >> are there special concerns for children? >> we're always concerned about children when it comes to infections because children actually come in much closer contact with each other than adults. you know for instance, at school they might hold hands, touch each other on the playground, share food. whereas adults in a workplace sort of keep a greater physical distance. that means kids are more likely to spread infection amongst each other. >> and you have flew season too, coming up. >> gayle, if there ever was a year to get a flu shot, this is it. i say that every year. >> i was going to say, holly, you said the exact same thing last year and the year before that. >> i do. but right now we have so many viral concerns circulating. >> charlie just made a note on his note where he makes notes, flu shot. >> i did. >> dr. holly has needles in the back. >> call me after the show. i'll take care of you. >> you're too observant.

♪ a chicago area sperm bank is facing a lawsuit this morning from a woman who claims she was given the wrong sperm. jennifer cramblett says she and her same-sex partner who was both white chose a caucasian donor instead they were given the vials from a black man. she learned about the switch when she was already 4 months pregnant with her mixed race daughter. cramblett says it's difficult raising her now 2-year-old girl in their all white community. >> i want the best for my child. hands down, i want her to feel
8:13 am
accepted, i want her to feel like she has a place with the people that she has a place with white, black, asian, any -- whoever she feels comfortable around, i want her to have that. >> cbs news legal analyst rikki klieman is with us. i was reading the story this morning. it's so disturbing to me on many levels because i keep thinking about this little girl when she gets older to realize a lawsuit was brought because basically you are a big mistake right now. >> well, you've got a good legal lawsuit because it sounds like negligence that the sperm bank switched these sperm samples. >> right. >> however you do also have this moral issue which is why you are disturbed. you have a young child, now 2 years old, who the parents say they love the child is perfect, they adore this child, and they just want a better life for this child. they want to bring this child to a more tolerant community. but the lawsuit is called a
8:14 am
wrongful birth lawsuit. so i say when the child is 18 or 13 or at some other point and the child hears that there's a suit where she's called a wrongful birth, wrongful birth, by the way traditionally was a lawsuit about if you had a child that had a congenital birth defect or some kind of congenital abnormality that you would sue a doctor for not warning you because of the wrongful birth. >> that makes it even worse. >> it does. but i think that it's an unfortunate labeling. so is breach of warranty which is the second count because breach of warranty sounds like you bought a commodity, you bought a car and it was defect defective. what they are saying though and they are very sympathetic, these two parents. you have a lesbian couple who both had to have difficulties with men, abused by men when they were children they wanted to use a donor or sperm, they wanted to do the right thing, so they do have some sympathy going toward them. >> how much are they asking for?
8:15 am
>> they're asking for a minimum of $50,000 in damages but that's just a threshold jord to get jurisdiction. so that's just a legal thing. what they really want are moving expenses. that's what they're looking for. because they want to take the child to a more tolerant community. well, that's going to be difficult to prove. how far do you go? when do you move? do you build a house? what do you do? >> why is this settled not publicly? >> that's the question. >> i reported on cases like this in the past and these sperm banks want to settle these cases quietly and they do end up -- >> of course they do. of course they do. and this may have been a situation where perhaps they didn't speak initially because it sounds like when the mother had called and that they realized that number 330 looked like number 380 because they were in print. i think that -- my guess is that number one, it is going to settle. and number two, is if they wind up going to court, clearly there's negligence. the question is what are the
